attending to personal matters

life happens

There are times when life outside of work requires us to take time off. Chevron has several types of leave with different rules and benefits. Understand your options to make the best choice for your situation.

If you need to be away from work, several kinds of leaves of absence — some with pay and some without pay — are available to eligible Chevron employees. Different kinds of leave have different rules for eligibility, requesting leave, impact on benefits, re-employment and service recognition.

Refer to the specific leaves listed below for more information or consult with your HR business partner if you're not sure about which leave might apply to you. As a reminder, you should also have a conversation with your supervisor well in advance, if possible, if you're thinking about taking a leave of absence.
